The Tools We Use

The Tools We Use!

Learn what tools many famous web designers and developers use. We will walk through the lists that have been developed by these folks and take a look at the cool software they find they can't live without.

Plan to tell us your favorite tool as well. "Mine is Adobe XD - design and prototyping tool from Adobe. I can do everything with it" - says Pepper, been teaching it in my classes at Durham Tech and its easy to learn and use.

Here is information about TECH HIRE Job Opportunities:

In June 2016, Wake Tech Community College announced they had received a TechHire grant award from the US Department of Labor to implement their TechHire training program known as Project SECURE (Supporting and Enhancing CyberSecurity through Upwardly-mobile Retraining and Education). This program is targeted at individuals between the ages of 17 -29. The Capital Area Workforce Development Board – a partner in the grant application - will be the initial point of contact for those interested in participating in this program. To learn more, please visit their website and complete their interest form under “Contact Us” -

Go for it!

Please consider moderating a meeting! It takes only a small amount of preparation and the back-and-forth discussion is much more lively than a Q&A session after a "powerpoint and bullets" lecture style presentation.

We often have Open Floor discussions on topics chosen by a volunteer moderator. Some tickler topics:

Building skills, or, what new software/services have you learned (or written!)

Tips and Techniques for effective design by newbies

Web SEO, marketing and evaluating results

Book or article reviews - read or written!

Focus Group style Web Site Tear Downs

Format of Meeting, and Time

We make a few minutes available as a meet-eat-and-greet time prior to any presentations or shop talk. We start formally at 7pm, but arriving at 6:45pm will give you time to get settled in and enjoy some pizza and soda courtesy of our host, Tek Systems.

We typically do a round-robin greeting just before the action starts at 7pm. We will end the greeting period with announcements, and then give the floor to the presenter or moderator.

Be sure to arrive early so you are not locked out of the doors on the first floor. They lock at 7pm.

Consider the benefits of moderating, presenting lecture style, or giving a tutorial:

Enhanced Credibility

Visibility For Your Business

Increased Good Will

Speakers, THANK YOU for your participation.

TekSystems ( MichaelKimsal ( About the Locations

Recent meetings have been held at TekSystems' offices at the corner of Edwards Mills and Trinity Road. Outside doors of the building lock at 7pm - we will try to have a posted paper with a cell number to call or text or have a person at the door - but arriving promptly will help avoid a wait and avoid someone having to leave the meeting to come downstairs to let you in..

We vacate the Tek Systems building by 9pm at the latest so staff can go home!
